, with the senate set to consider gunlation after its spring recess, michael bloomberg and wayne lapierre are both promising to invest millions in that coming legislative fight. bloomberg's group, mayors against illegal guns, announced it will spend $12 million, all of the mayor's money -- not all of it, has plenty more, on ads like this one to push democratic and republican senators to back gun control efforts. >> for me, guns are for hunting and protecting my family. i believe in the second amendment. and i'll fight to protect it. but with rights come responsibilities. that's why i support comprehensive background checks. >> 90% of the public wants something, and their representatives vote against that. common sense says they are going to have a price to pay for that. >> he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. they don't want him in their restaurants. they don't want him in their homes, they don't want him telling them what food to eat. they sure don't want him telling them what self defense firearms to own, and he can't buy america. >> nbc's de
that there's a secret agenda that the nra and wayne lapierre talk about which is create a registry of all gun owners. they either want to attack the guns or take them away. >> he can say whatever he wants. this isn't about wayne lapierre. this is about a public wanting to be safe on their streets. this is about the public having the right to buy arms and the right to protect themselves and the right to use them for sport or hunting. but, also, it's about the public's right to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill. that's in everybody's interests. if you go back to 1999, wayne lapierre testified on behalf of the nra that background checks were appropriate and should be done and congress back in 1968 actually made them the law of the land, but they don't apply to 40% of the gun sales today. something like 58,000 gun dealers across this country, three times the number of mcdonald's stores, as a matter of fact, there are gun stores every place in this country, and those gun sellers -- they do background checks on all their clients. i think last year 78,000 times the governm
. >> that is wayne lapierre head of the nra. this guy he was referring to is new york mayor mike bloomberg. here with us now is democratic senator from pennsylvania and member of the foreign relations committee, senator bob casey and former governor of pennsylvania, msnbc political analyst and co-chair of fix the debt campaign, governor ed rendell. you guys, pennsylvania. huge state. huge sprawling state. filled with sports people, hunters, gun owners, the vast majority of them responsible. where are you on what wayne lapierre said? >> well, we have a million hunters in the state. as ed knows, it's a big part of our culture and pennsylvania. after newtown i spent a lot of time thinking what happened there and i made a pretty substantial shift in my position. i think we should have not only a vote but pass some of the measures we have been talking about, the assault weapons ban, the magazine clip legislation, if we can get to that, and the background checks. there could be others but those are the three main ones. even if it's only done by way of amendment when we get to the legislation itself. >
a person to shoot another person and listen, bloomberg can do what he wants, but i side with wayne lapierre. >> he says that bloomberg is going to spend 12 million dollars. and wayne lapierre says that he's trying to buy america, what do you say? >> that's the way the political system is built. he has a lot of money and a lot of influence and the problem i have with these commercials, to charles' point he's not using facts to back up what he is pushing on the television commercials. he's injecting a lot of emotion. he's not using why are these people actually killing in the first place, he's blaming it on the guns themselves. so, are there some things that mayor bloomberg that have been done in the city that are good. yes. i don't disagree, i think they're helpful as a consumer, however, he's got the money, he's going to influence politics. charles: exact, i agree. i think he could do more-- what he does with his mayor is fine. as mayor some of the things he pushed through, you know, and i thought was ridiculous. if he wants to spend his fortune to change the way that america thinks, that's
. lois, let me start with you. i want to play what wayne lapierre played on "meet the press" in response to mayor bloomberg and his millions of dollars he is willing to put up in this battle. >> he is going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people and for the people. and he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. they don't want him in their restaurants. they don't want him in their homes them don't want them telling them what food to eat. they sure don't want to say which firearms to own that and he can't buy america. >> interesting remarks for many reasons. he waves in this soda ban and some other things but basically paints bloomberg as daddy war bucks, trying to dole out his cash. we know the nra has its arsenal as well and has, too, shelled out millions of dollars in an effort. >> i think before this whole fight is over, we'll be spending hundreds of millions of dollars on this. he made a very clever point. he is trying to paint bloomberg as a guy that is just going to buy everything. but the one thing that is going o
gun owners. >> already supported background checks. >> wayne lapierre greed with that back in the 1990s. he was one of 85% in the 1990s until, i guess the gun manufacturers told him to change his position. >> right. >> okay. >> right. now he parades around with this clown show literally say if they take the rapist gun from the rapist, they will come after your gun. >> if we scream rapists from getting guns and doing a background check to see if they have been a rapist or felon, we are somehow violating other americans' rights? that's just a lie. >> here is eugene robinson what he writes in "the washington pos post". the worst way to respond to the shocking massacre in newtown, connecticut, would be to let political self-interests stand in the way of meaningful action. the parents of those 20 slain children deserve a vote on the assault weapons ban. the families of 30,000 americans who will be killed by gunfire this year deserve a vote. bringing the measure to the floor of both the senate and the house is the least congress can do. we all know what is happening here. senate democrats fa

. national rifle association chief wayne lapierre has vowed to lead a counter campaign against bloomberg's efforts to. in his weekly address on saturday, president obama called on lawmakers to pass gun control legislation, including a contentious assault weapons ban that has been dropped by senate democrats. >> these ideas should not be controversial. they are common-sense. they are supported by a majority of the american people. i urge the senate and house to give each of them a vote. as i have said before, we may not be able to prevent every act of violence in this country, but together we have an obligation to try. we have an obligation to do what we can. >> the police chief of omaha, nebraska is promising an investigation after video captured police throwing them into the street even though he did not appear to be resisting. on the recording, officers then appear to punch octavious johnson repeatedly while he is on the ground. johnson and his two brothers were arrested during the incident last week. their aunt said officers chased one of them into the house to try to seize the video
and my family. >> however, nra vice president wayne lapierre was blunt in his assessment of bloomberg's advocacy saying american values are not up for sale. >> he's going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people and for the people and he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. they don't want him in their restaurants. they don't want him in their homes or telling them what food to eat. they sure don't want him telling what self-defense firearms to own and he can't buy america. he's so reckless in his terps of his comments on this whole gun issue. >> we have people all over, millions of people sending us 5, 10, 15, $20 checks saying stand up to this guy that says we can only have three bullets which is what he said. stand up to this guy that says ridiculous things like the nra wants firearms with nukes on them. it's insane. >> i'd pay money to see them in a gb in the same room. the senate will debate the proposed gun legislation next month after returning from easter recess. >>> well, some things only happen every four y
a counterbalance to the nra i find wayne lapierre's comments just sort of bizarre. he is basically saying that the nra can do what they do. they can run ads of the they can try to persuade senators to vote a certain way but nobody else can. and i don't think running ads is imposing your will on people. i think it is running ads and letting people be informed and make a decision and being an advocate. mayor bloomberg is being an advocate for a position and there is nothing wrong with that. heather: rich, what do you think?. >> i think that is basically right. it is a free country. you can spend as much money as you want. i think the reason why you saw a such a strong reaction from wayne la pierre going to opening marks of the segment nra, would love, love, mayor bloom to be public face of gun control in america. the man associated with intruding himself into ordinary's people he is business. who wants to ban and prohibit a bunch of different things so the nra loves this fight with mayor bloomberg. heather: really what he is trying to do here is influence votes by senators prior to the deba
is that people keep demonizing the nra and wayne lapierre and i'll be the first to admit that wayne lapierre post-sandy hook speech was a rhetorical train wreck. but the fact of the matter is the nra is representing a lot of people very interested in this issue and again if there was such a ground roots swell for this, i don't think bloomberg would even be worried about running these ads. >> i just wanted to bring this up because it was so bizarre that jim carrey put out this gun control kind of ad and you have to kind of watch it because i can't blaine it, but it's very offensive. let's watch a bit of it. ♪ on the ones who sell the guns, he'd sick the vultures and coyotes ♪ ♪ only the devil's true devotees could profiteer from pain and fear ♪ >> okay. i know it's from funny or die, but it's making the rounds online. does this sort of thing really help the cause, jason? >> i think it does. because it brings a different and you had general audience. funny or die uses these celebrities for all sorts of different issue. but i think it's valuable because people will pay attention. people who
